Hyde Park

CIMG6393aWhen my parents came and visited me at the end of my Scotland trip we ended up in London for a few days since I wanted to spend a little time there and also our flights left from there. One  of the things we did while we were in London was walk through Hyde park. I really don’t know much about Hyde park but it’s a famous beautiful park in London and here are some pictures from it.

Biggar // Scotland

CIMG5422aWhen my parents came and visited me at the end of my time in Scotland, we ended up staying for a period of time with some of their friends in the town of Biggar. While we were there we had the opportunity to go up on the roof of a church and see the beautiful view. These pictures are what came out of that little trip to the rooftop.

Hocking Hills

CIMG7858aDuring ‘Senior Week’ the school tried to have fun activities that you could do (most of which were just “come and drink here so that we can watch over you”) and one of which (one of the very few that did not seem to be about drinking) was hiking in Hocking Hills. The organization for the event was terrible but overall I actually had a really good experience. I went with my friend and explored a new place I had never been to before. It was really beautiful (although smaller than I was expecting) and here are some lovely pictures of nature for you to enjoy. There are quite a few so I hope you are ready for the long haul.

Borders Trip pt. 6 // Scotland

CIMG1941aAnd finally, our very last stop of the (very long) day was to Scot’s View. This is the place where apparently Sir Walter Scott came for inspiration to be alone and write or something like that. Anyway, it was pretty (but not as pretty as I thought it was going to be) and I got a few pictures (although the lighting wasn’t super good). Yes, I am blaming the sun and not my sub-par photography skills.  Continue reading “Borders Trip pt. 6 // Scotland”

Sorry for the very long break from Scotland pictures. Did you miss them? I really like doing these posts but they take a lot more time and energy than my book posts. Have you enjoyed this week of posts? I’ve really enjoyed doing it. Anyway, onward to the post.

Ok, we’re almost done with this day trip. If you haven’t seen the other posts be sure to check them out: Part 1Part 2Part 3, and Part 4. In this stop we explored Rosslyn Chapel.  Continue reading “Borders Trip pt.5 // Scotland”

Borders Day trip – pt 1 // Scotland

CIMG1673a
Edinburgh castle as seen at dusk.

The program I went abroad with facilitated a few trips for us to take. In order to go on this day trip I ended up staying overnight at a friend of my parent’s house in Edinburgh since that’s where I needed to be in the morning. She took me on a mini tour of Edinburgh at dusk and I was able to take a few pictures of Edinburgh as the sky was getting darker and I had a lot of fun editing them so here they are… Continue reading “Borders Day trip – pt 1 // Scotland”

Firbish Activity Weekend Part 4 // Scotland

CIMG2659a

Hello and welcome to the last post on this weekend. Make sure you check out Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 from this weekend. If you recall, in the morning I went for a walk into the town and saw some standing stones. On the afternoon I actually ended up going back to the standing stones with a guide person who wanted to tell us lots of history (which I have conveniently all forgotten) and then we went to this really old building (which again, don’t remember why it was important) which I climbed around on (despite the warning sign) and ignored whatever the guide was saying. Is that terrible? Maybe. I just wanted to explore this cool building and I got some ok pictures so here they are. Continue reading “Firbish Activity Weekend Part 4 // Scotland”
